At more than a dozen locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.
The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
Express Car Detailing's name doesn't quite express how much they love cars. It's their passion and why they dedicate themselves to returning autos to showroom status with comprehensive interior and exterior details. But their passion for cars goes beyond details with hand washes. They also rid autos of dings with paintless dent removal and update appearances with window tinting. Accessorizing options are varied and even include audio systems and wheel rims. Tech is their thing, too, installing Smart Start remote starters and Viper security systems.
Though it has adopted advanced technology in its cleaning tunnels, Waves Car Wash still powers some of its services with the original drier: the sun. On the roof are 160 solar panels that soak up rays, fueling up to 20% of the facility's electrical output. The panels reflect Waves Car Wash's emphasis on green initiatives?others include biodegradable cleaning products and a recycling system for waste water. The shop also channels its vehicle-sprucing expertise to benefit charitable programs such as Wash for a Cause and Wash Away Thirst.
Meticulous treatments and a familial ambiance have enabled the wash spot to achieve its current level of altruism. Car washes ranked from Basic to Extreme glamorize vehicles with water, wax, and wheel pampering. Detailing, buffing, and headlight-restoration services leave cars looking so flashy that they'll begin attracting disco balls. Enamored patrons can even join the Always Clean Unlimited Wash Club, which grants them infinite cleanings in exchange for a monthly fee.
With its pitched roof, large windows, and red-brick exterior, Village Detail recalls the image of a quaint suburban home. Inside, cars and trucks purr contentedly as technicians wash exteriors and vacuum interiors. The shop's ? la carte services include enzyme odor remover and Rain-X treatments, which repel water more effectively than dipping cars in salad dressing.
All it takes to transform a dirty vehicle into a clean chariot at Acton Car Wash is 120 feet. The facility's modern Belanger car-wash system uses soft cloths and a barrage of foam polishes, sealer waxes, and chassis cleaners to rinse away filth and grime. Regardless of the level of the wash, each visit ends with a staff member meticulously drying the car by wiping it down with a hand towel and using a crazy straw to blow away leftover water droplets.
As a kid, Wayne Haddad would clean any vehicle he could get his hands on, whether it was his mother’s car, the neighborhood kids’ go-karts and mini bikes, or the Corvettes his older brother loved to work on. It's hardly surprising, then, that he opened Haddad Auto Detail, a company he’s helmed for more than 35 years. Over the years, Wayne has maintained a loyal clientele with his thoughtful car care advice.
Haddad Auto Detail's technicians recommend quarterly visits as a way to maintain a vehicle’s longevity by clearing away the acidic bugs that cling to bumpers in summer and the road salt that eats away at paint in winter. To complement these regular visits, Wayne’s team performs an extensive array of services, specializing in hand waxing and machine buffing to remove scratches. They also administer interior shampooing, particularly accident clean-up services that target stubborn stains on cloth seats from spilled food, carsickness, and pets. Mobile services provide on-location work, freeing drivers to stay at home, at the office, or inside the trunk while having their vehicles cleaned.
